Tomato J Walsh


GENUS: Lycopersicon SPECIES: lycopersicum


Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: Tauranga
Number of Seeds: 20

Description: Indeterminate. Sent to us by June Walsh of Tauranga years ago this has turned out to be a real beauty. It is a reliable heavy cropper, bearing large bunches of yellow egg shaped tomatoes (larger than an egg though) that can be enjoyed by those who need acid free tomatoes. In a tomato those called ‘acid free’ are those with high sugar contents.

Planting Instructions: Plant into trays late September and prick out at 3 cm diagonal spacing when first leaves appear. Handle touching the leaves only. When leaves touch, transplant into 10 cm deep pots or trays to 10 cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15 cm high transplant into garden 50 cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1 m wide bed. Needs staking.
